It’s not too soon to start thinking about summer options for your children. Finally out of school, kids are ready to have summer fun and camp is an excellent choice offering fresh air, new friends, novel experiences, and a true vacation for that child who has been working hard all year at school.
But what if yours also faces the challenge of being an overweight child?
Usually these kids avoid sports and tend to isolate. More often than not, they are the kids stuck like glue to a video game screen, and hide their pain and boredom by over eating. You’ve probably tried everything – limiting sweets, watching their portions, and getting the whole family to eat more salads – but to your overweight child (and sometimes to you too), it seems more like resentments are being formed rather that healthy eating habits that promote effective weight loss.
Weight loss camp may be the answer. Kids like fun, and laughter works where reason, threats, guilt and rules do not.
Send your child to Camp Shane, the oldest and most successful weight loss camp for children, set in the breathtaking Catskill Mountains. At Camp Shane, your child won’t be out of place – everyone is in the same boat. Rather than being bullied or teased, they will be supported, encouraged, and even cheered on (all kids make the team here). We guarantee they will have the time of their life, while the pounds drop off!
We offer an effective weight loss and fitness plan built around delicious portion-controlled meals, plenty of exercise in the fresh mountain air, and fun activities that entice even shyest or laziest kid. In short, a self-esteem and confidence building program that marked the turning point of their young lives – and they won’t even notice the good it’s doing them. Think of it as the sleep-away camp experience equivalent of hiding carrots in the meatloaf!
The secret is the laughter. You hear it ring out all over the camp. Our campers have more fun than they knew was possible while learning lifelong lessons about nutrition, fitness, and effective weight loss. They also learn a lot of things they also didn’t know – like what they are capable of once they try.
